Why use an oil cooler?
- Reduces deterioration of your hydraulic oil
- Performance improvement of your hydraulic system
In a modern hydraulic system an oil cooler is usually used to control the temperature in the system. Applying such a cooling system for hydraulics has the following advantages: the oil will last longer because deterioration is reduced and the performance of the hydraulic system is improved. There are different types of oil coolers (also known as heat exchangers), cooled by air or by water.
Air-cooled oil coolers for hydraulics
In an air-cooled oil cooler the hydraulic oil in the cooler is cooled by air streaming through, which cools down the oil. Often this type of cooler is equipped with an electric or hydraulic ventilator. Findynamica has a wide range of air-cooled coolers available from stock that are equipped with a mounting base and a ventilator as standard. We also have many options available such as vibration dampers and electrical or mechanical thermostats. Air cooled oil coolers are available in the following series: S, SC, ST, SSP and SER.
Water-cooled oil coolers for hydraulics
In a water-cooled oil cooler the oil is led along a bundle of copper pipes. At the same time coolant runs through these pipes and cools down the oil. A water-cooled cooler can be a very effective cooling system for intensively used hydraulic systems. When using a water-cooled oil cooler it is important to regularly inspect the cooler for contamination. When the water in a water-cooled oil cooler becomes contaminated this reduces the cooling capacity. Water-cooled oil coolers are available in series SA and SAB.
